Port Washington - decent school district but offers a great commute into the City that is ~35 mins. If you are looking at Port Washington, you should also check out Great Neck, better schools, closer to the main highways and has a solid main st area and the same train line as Port Washington. Personally, hated going into Port Washington because there are only a few main rds out which are prone to heavy traffic.

Roslyn - I believe it is a higher ranked school district then Port Washington; however, since it is a wealthy area many of the kids get after school support to help boost their grades( so I hear) - so it may not be the teachers themselves. It is about 50 mins into the city off the Oyster Bay line.

Westbury - Not sure if you meant Old Westbury or Westbury? There is a distinct difference. You should definitely look into each and see. Although I live in Albertson, my school district is East Williston and share the same schools as Old Westbury residents... those would be my recommendations

Albertson has it own train stop that is shared by Roslyn Heights and East Williston. Same train that serves Roslyn. It is divided into 3 school districts( Herricks, Mineola and East Williston) and close enough to the Mineola line that is direct into the city and would meet your needs. I decided against Herricks because of the 80% asian to 20 percent others for school mix and I am asian. East Williston was 75 caucasian, 20 asian and 5 other - with the same lots of 60 x 100.

Class sizes are generally all the same - 12-15 kids per class, so nothing gained from the places you named.

At the end, it all depends on your preference for lot size and property taxes vs school district.

Here we go again. It’s extremely diversity.

White, Hispanic, African American, Asians with a small mix of others. That’s the textbook definition of diversity.

Or did you actually mean what 99% of other people think, diversity = anything but AA and Hispanic.
